Check the food grinder (small blade spins against a screen) in the bottom of the dish washer drain. I found the grinder to be inoperative and clogged which reduced / stopped flow of the wash water. Also, small pieces of clear plastic food wrap can block flow.

The sensor that measures moisture content is either covered in lint or it has failed. You need to partially dismantle the unit to completely de-fluff it.

No, it's not normal for them to be soaking wet at the end of the cycle, but there are things that can affect this. First, make sure you have Heated Dry selected. Next, make sure you are using rinse-aid (Jet Dry), because the new dishwashers don't use as much heat as the older dishwashers, and Jet Dry will greatly aid in the drying. Be aware that plastics won't get dry in any dishwasher. Other things you can do is turn on the extra heat options in the wash cycle, and turn on the Sani-Rinse option (if you DW has such options). Otherwise, you may have a heater or controller problem.

Whirlpool dishwashers use a wax motor or a solinoid to release the door at a specific time during the cycle. So for proper cleaning the soap cup is nessesary . The part isn't that expensive and fairly simple repair.

Try throw the breaker off for 15 min then back on. That may clear the program. If not restart it on the "wrong" cycle and let it finish out.

Hi Kevin,...
It appears that it could be something to do with the locking feature on your washer. Check out page 17 on your attached manual.
Hope this somewhat helps!

F8 failure (slow/no draining)

In a consumer cycle, the appliance is indicating F8 E1 (slow/no draining). This is because of wrong signals from the circulation pump read by the control board and interpreted as "water present", when there is no water. During draining (and in fact, there is no water), the failure occurs.

1. Check if drain hose is not closed/clogged
2. Drain pump faulty, harness or wiring faulty, control board faulty
3. If machine is equipped with OWl, issue might be caused by damaged or dirty OWl. Clean the sensor lenses then , if issue is not solved, replace OWI (optical water indicator).
